About us


The law says that the NSW Police Force or the NSW Crime Commission should be primarily responsible for complaints that are made about their staff.

The LECC makes sure these agencies deal with misconduct complaints appropriately.


We can conduct our own investigations into complaints about serious misconduct within the NSW Police Force and the NSW Crime Commission.


We conduct research on the way in which the Police and Crime Commission work so that we can identify any unlawful or unreasonable practices and help to prevent misconduct in the future.
